Ohio Supreme Court Justice Visited Chillicothe Tuesday

An Ohio Supreme Court judge visited Chillicothe Tuesday. Associate Justice Sharon Kennedy is running for chief justice this fall, so she says is giving each county a listening session.

She described it as a roundtable discussion for Ross County to gain perspective from the sheriff, community leaders, and business people.

Kennedy said she sees part of the job as a chief justice is to help communities set their own policies to fit local needs, and so she wants to visit each county in the state. She had a breakfast in Pickaway County, and then left for an afternoon visit in Pike.

Kennedy says her career as a police officer, private-practice attorney, common pleas trial judge, and then Ohio supreme court justice gives her a unique and helpful perspective which she described as "a 360-degree view of the criminal justice system."

The Ross County Republican Party and Republican Women of Ross County hosted the luncheon event.
